A Promethean interactive whiteboard was installed in my lab in October and I have definitely become dependent on it. I use it for modeling in my mini-lessons, for which my students sit in rows on the floor at the beginning of class. Using the board is a great way to show my students how to navigate Google Earth, manipulate an image in Comic Life or Glogster, or use the formatting toolbar in Word.
I appreciate the ability to explore technology as a group using the Promethean board in contrast to having students work independently at their computers. I believe it helps in building community and allows us to learn more from each other.
